Disney Debuts MOANA Trailer With Song From HAMILTON Tony Winner (VIDEO)

Moana

Well that was well-timed.

On the heels of Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s Broadway musical phenomenon Hamilton sweeping this year’s Tony Awards with 11 trophies, Walt Disney Studios – no stranger to synergy – debuts the first teaser trailer for Moana (below), their new animated musical with songs by the showtune-rapping star himself.

The tale of an adventurous young Hawaiian heroine who sets out on an epic journey, this first look at Moana understandably focuses on the star power of its main sidekick Maui, a demigod voiced by Dwayne Johnson. His shtick is followed by a cut from one of Miranda’s songs.

Moana surfs into theaters on November 23, 2016 for the Thanksgiving holiday.
